I'm so pleased with the statement that this adds!
Here's the amateur tutorial:
Step 1 - I mentioned here with my original inspiration post, and then again here for an in process update.
Step 2 - Gather your supplies
- tape measure
- Scotch clear glue stick (with sponge applicator tip)
- Engineering prints from Staples
Step 3 - Once you get your Engineering prints (mine were each 24x36" @ $3.49 each), begin adhering. I started the process simply using little adhesive sticker squares, but they were leaving way too much "air" behind each print.
But then I realized, that if I simply used regular scotch clear glue that had a sponge applicator, I could get a fairly flat seam.
Step 4 - measure, glue, cut....repeat.
Because this project was going up in the Disaster Zone, I could only work on it in chunks while the boys were sleeping. Thus, it took me a LONG time to finish!
Things got a little tricky where the outlet was, so I took the cover off so I could cut a hole outlet-sized.
Step 5 - Step back and adore
The total cost of this project was just shy of $40.
I love it.
It adds the exact statement the playroom needs, and captures fun moments that spend time playing with our little men.
What do you think? I think this would look really cool in a kids room, an entryway or even a hallway!
